Project Health Equity

Helping Provide Greater Awareness and Access for Underserved Women

Since our founding in 1985, Hologic has dedicated itself to advancing greater well-being for all women. Through Project Health Equity, Hologic and our partners champion underserved women through greater awareness about the importance of preventive care, access to care at strategic locations and culturally informed research. Systemic racism, bias and a well-documented history of mistrust between people of color and the medical establishment continue to drive disparities in access to healthcare. We created Project Health Equity to fund initiatives that help overcome these disparities. Some of Project Health Equity’s 2022 featured highlights include:

College of American Pathologists (CAP) Foundation “See, Test, Treat”

These health professionals provided “See, Test, Treat” services.

Hologic joined the CAP Foundation in Jackson, Mississippi on August 20, 2022, for its “See, Test, Treat” day. The event provided a wide range of preventive-care services to underserved residents, from screening for cervical and breast cancers to gynecologic health checks.

Promise Fund of Florida

Hologic’s financial support helps the Promise Fund of Florida employ 20 patient navigators to guide patients through the care process across a dozen health facilities in Palm Beach County and Broward County, Florida. These specialists conduct outreach, book appointments, arrange transportation, provide translation services, explain medical procedures and coordinate follow-up care.

National Alliance for Hispanic Health (NAHH)

Hologic supports the NAHH program “Mi Hermana, Latina Health Champions,” which has developed a seminar series for community health workers on wellness, partnered with community groups to train health workers, funded 10 university teams’ research on health disparities and provided messaging about how race, ethnicity and gender matter in healthcare.

Breast Cancer Support Fund (BCSF)

In Ontario, Canada, Hologic and the Breast Cancer Support Fund (BCSF) joined forces to promote the importance of routine screenings — and to highlight practical resources that help more women access those screenings.

Helping Underserved Women Worldwide

In addition to Project Health Equity, Hologic partners with organizations in other ways to deliver care and improve access to underserved women around the world. These partners connect women with culturally competent care through awareness, education, clinical resources and research.
